Los Angeles Haunted Hayride 2016: Secret Society

derangedFor Halloween 2016, the Los Angeles Haunted Hayride promises completely revamped horror experience, based around the theme The Secret Society of Samhain. In a new twist on the familiar ride, guests will be judged to be among either The Elite or the Deranged - and sent down separate paths, depending on the designation, thus creating two different journeys through blighted landscape and twisted terrain. As if that were not enough, guests (now declared "Society Members) will be forced to leave the "safety" of the Haunted Hayride, to confront the demented denizens of Griffith Park's Old Zoo face-to-face, on foot.
